    Interesting though it seems a bit complicated. Still the apparent flexibility of sites is a plus.

    As someone from Ontario, I am still chuckling at the presenter’s pronunciation of “Goderich”. Oh well, it could have been Gananoque.

    I like that it wasn’t a marketing presentation: It listed the technical problems and the various attempts to compensate for them.

    No energy/efficiency/density statistics provided but otherwise interesting because I’ve never heard of that energy storage before (well, my basement well pressure tank does it minuscule of course). I don’t think I’ll do the calculations myself because I’m tired of doing the calculations myself for everything that I hear about. Ontario Hydro One claims our 12-hour night generation is 100% nuclear fission & hydroelectric so I simply leave the oven & electric heaters on all night & cycle the water tank thermostat. Low tech. Can I get a Trudeau grant for that ?
